Andra Day Wears a Dress Made Entirely of Sparkles and Swarovski Crystals in Her Hair


Andra Day is as beautiful as she is vocally talented. Spend about five seconds listening to her new single, “Stand Up For Something” featuring Common, and I promise (money back guarantee, here) you’ll get the chills.

It’s hard to truly say anyone WON last night at the NAACP Image Awards. You had Kerry Washington in a Michael Kors gown made for a princess, Danielle Brooks in a custom Michael Costello fairytale dress, and Danai Gurira in a chic white Rodarte look. But Ms. Andra Day: you, my friend, won if we could identify a winner.

Day arrived wearing a Giorgio Armani Fall 2018 runway look that was entirely beaded. On the runways of Milan, the look was shown with a bedazzled headscarf. Day styled her hair just as deliciously.

Everything is always a collaboration with the entire glam team. If one of us is missing, the looks are never complete,” Day’s hairstylist Tony Medina tells “I specialize in Old Hollywood Hairstyling, so I always bring a vintage touch to complete her fun and funky looks. I completed her 1920’s finger wave with hand stoned Swarovski clips, which I made the night before [the awards].”


“The design, the fabric choice, the intricate beauty of the stones on the dress made it the one,” her wardrobe stylist Wouri Vice tells “[This dress is] mysterious all while serving opulent glamour. I’ve worked with the Armani house for years and there’s always something luxe about the experience. The designs are always next level.”
